Motion on Schoeman claiming gold at WTS Abu Dhabi

The African National Congress moves without notice: That the House

1) notes that the South African athlete Henri Schoeman collected the first gold of the 2018 World Triathlon Series in Abu Dhabi on Saturday 2 March 2018;
2) believes that the Olympic bronze medallist was in a class of his own in the sprint event as he won both the swim and the cycle races to claim an impressive victory;
3) understands that Schoeman became only the second male triathlete after two-time Olympic champion Alistair Brownlee to win both the swimming and cycling events and go on to win a WTS race;
4) remembers that it was an impressive display considering the wet conditions making it difficult on the motor-racing course;
5) recalls that the South African defeated defending series champion Mario Mola of Spain in a mad dash on the 5-kilometre run leg; and
6) congratulates Schoeman on the fantastic performance and wishes him well in the upcoming 2018 Commonwealth Games next month.
